Rob King and David Ingber, two writers for the sports comedy site The Kicker, put each other on the defensive by forcing one another to take the other side of various debates, as they discuss the biggest, silliest, weirdest, and most volatile topics in sports. With fast-paced jokes and a flat-out refusal to do real research, these two give sports fans exactly what they want: ridiculous hot takes. All while attempting not to destroy their decade-long friendship.

Two things are certain this time of year: the Patriots will be in the Super Bowl, and Rob will delusionally think the Jets are there instead. What’s left to say about Brady and Co at this point?? Rob and Dave say all of it. Also, some tennis discussion about who has the highest highs of the men’s Big Three. There’s some major Harden love and hatera…
 
Rob and Dave are back with an old standby: the improvised sports TV pilot idea. It's "Pitch" meets "The Replacements" meets "Draft Day" with a whole bunch of other weird stuff thrown in there. And if you'd like to steal it, the guys kindly ask that you don't? Honor system, folks. Plus, Dave has the drop on an epic reverse jinx to make sure the Chie…
 
Remember the Titans? Well, Rob and Dave do. They welcome in the New Year starting with the College Football Championship, and Clemson's blowout win led by Trevor "Sunshine" Lawrence. Also, get ready for some hot takes with the NFL playoffs. Will Andrew Luck's blue collar QB play be enough to take down Patrick Mahomes' flashy game? Dave thinks so. L…
 
The Patriots' run is OFFICIALLY over. LeBron, Lonzo, AND a mystery guest had an unprecedented triple-triple-double on the Lakers. And Dave has finally settled on the best quarterback in the league. No spoilers, but it's definitely Josh Allen. Plus, there's some ranting about Christmas music, the Eagles have an insane new nickname, Dave makes Rob VE…
 
If you re-drafted this season, who would be the top five quarterbacks? If the ball family got a spin off, who would be the star? If Dave could coach the Patriots, what would be the all-time super duper crazy insane fantasy play that would never actually happened but that we can still dream about happening? All these questions and more get answered …
 
Rob and Dave are digging in to this week's best (primarily football) sports stories, including the way that Eli Manning has learn how to bend the spacetime continuum when throwing passes this year. Also, they talk about how Bill Belichick's nefarious plans to take over the NFL over the next 60 years factors into the Packers' big decision, now that …
 
Sometimes, the news stories just conspire in the world to create a special day where Rob and Dave have something very passionate to say about everything. This is one of those days. Dave gets VERY excited to bash a certain player on the Celtics (!?!?), and Rob has a whole lot of thoughts on his best friend/younger brother/favorite nephew LaMelo Ball…
 
While Rob has been off being a movie star Dave fixed the NFL's QB problem. If you're tired of seeing Nathan Peterman, Brock Osweiler, or whoever the heck is starting for the 49ers right now, then listen to this episode! Let's fix the NFL QB problem once and for all. Oh, also Rob is starring in a movie and he may have gone all "Hollywood" on us. (Fo…
 
Word on the street is that Kevin Durant is going to the Knicks next season. So Rob and Dave put their incredible brains together to improvise what a "Durant to the Knicks" movie would look like. Spoiler Alert: David Fizdale will yell at many people, and the new Knicks may go over Niagra Falls! This movie WILL be made. Hear it here first.…
 
It's a little bit of everything today. A smorgasbord, if you will, of topical sports news. LeBron's Lakers stumbling out of the gate, the Red Sox being the most fun team to root for, and even a little update on everything that LaVar, Lonzo, and LiAngelo Ball have been up to. There might even be a little millionaire matchmaking taking place? Oh, and…
 
Yeah, it's episode 100, and since Rob and Dave put out one episode every 10 years, that means they're both at least 1,000 years old. Math! But as such, it's time to sit back and figure out -- what are the ten "cranky old man sports takes" that you actually believe in? Any sport, any aspect of the sport, could be on the court or off. But what turns …
 
Guys, they really tried. They really, really did. Astros versus Red Sox, one baseball fan and one decidedly non-baseball fan gave it their all, and they learned a thing we'd kind of always assumed: baseball is a LOT of dead time. Does the conversation descend into a cantankerous discussion of why lefties can't beat the shift and a healthy does of R…
 
Well, we can put that experiment to bed. You know, like every NFL fan who can speak in full sentences, Rob and Dave have long thought that they could do play-by-play better than the jamokes who are actually on television. That they'd be funnier and more insightful and just a hell of a lot more entertaining. Well... you be the judge. They do the fir…
 
We’re talking Red Sox sexiness in beating the Yankees. Jamaal Charles making every 31 year old on the planet feel super old. And of course, the descent of UFC into one notch above the WWE, the way it was kind of always destined to be. That's right, it’s time for another edition of all-in/not a fan. Rob and Dave are diving super deep into the front …
 
Okay, we're really sorry, but the first ten minutes of this podcast are just Rob and Dave getting super angry at each other about a MAJOR FANTASY FOOTBALL CONTROVERSY. We know, we know, you don't care about anyone else's league, but really, everyone's souls are at stake here. Feel free to skip past this if you're just here for the hoops. But then w…
 
Oh yeah, it's time for your classic mid-week news dump. Some storylines from around the NBA and NFL. We're talking Le'Veon Bell (finally coming back). We're talking LeBron (what sort of year is he going to have? Because he's going to intentionally score about 8 points per game.) We're even talking some baseball (what??) led by Rob (WHAT??!??!), who…
 
If you're one of those sports fans that thinks the NCAA is just perfect and nothing about it could be better, then maybe this episode just ain't for you. But if you're one of the 99.99% of fans who enjoy college sports to some degree but wish there were a bit less guilt or shenanigans associated with it, then this IS for you! We're addressing scori…
 
Have you ever heard a man who has just been beaten by life? Well now you have. Dave has taken this loss to the Detroit Lions hard, and it's leading to all sorts of stress eating and Belichick conspiracies that take back all the way to 2001. Plus! Some more uplifting NFL stories, like the ascension of Pat Mahomes (and his new weird-as-hell nicknames…
 
This is not a drill, people. We got it. As soon as we learned the LeBron James (yes, THE LeBron James) was teaming up with the greatest young director in Hollywood to make "Space Jam 2", the good folks at The Kicker Podcast reached out to see if we could get an advance copy. And you know something? They emailed it over in 30 seconds. So nice of the…
 
They say you shouldn't overreact to what happens early in an NFL season. Rob and Dave say screw all of that. Today, they are taking the best and biggest and funniest storylines of the season and extrapolating them out into the biggest possible insane threads they can be. Josh Gordon is better than Randy Moss in 2007? Aaron Rodgers is a character in…
 
Improvising sports movies? Rob and Dave have been there and done that. It's time to dip their comedic toes into new water, by building out a brand new sports comedy TV show in which a handpicked group of NFL superstars join together in order to solve crimes. Yes, it's the A-Team, but with a slightly different name that you won't believe. What crime…
 
If you have a bench, you're just wrong. Rob and Dave can officially say it. You're playing the game of fantasy football wrong. Don't you want an endless stream of stars on your team every single week? OF COURSE YOU DO. Plus! Rob and Dave break down the financial and workers rights aspects of Le'Veon Bell's bold contract holdout, and just what the h…
 
Recording live from TKP's Fantasy Football draft, Rob is joined by Jeremiah Budin and Dave (F*** You) Krahn to give play by play as players from all over the globe (seriously) fill up a roster with NO BENCH. Spoiler Alert: Everyone drafted bad teams! Dave was away working on a super secret project that may or may not be the next Star Wars (it isn't…
 
That's right, the NFL is thankfully, mercifully, and wonderfully back in our lives. Rob and Dave go through all of the week one match-ups and decide with ferocious accuracy who is going to win. And of course Dave utilizes the point spread to figure out the games, because that's what sane people do, and Rob just picks which teams are going to win, b…
 
It's an OLD-SCHOOL episode of Rob and Dave going through this week's biggest and spiciest headlines, all capped off with some All-in/Not A Fan. We're talking about Teddy Bridgewater's new home (and how it'll affect poor lil Tom The Macho Man Savage), A.A. Ron Rod Gurrs brand-new contract that makes him almost as rich as James Harden (who receives s…
 
Anyone can tell you what might work when it comes to Fantasy Football. But only TKP's Dave Ingber can tell you what definitely will NOT work. Trust him, he knows. His fantasy rules have not worked for over a decade. **(From Rob) Dave's rules are actually pretty good. He's just cursed, and that's why he'll never win. Make sure to listen, and make su…
 
Yeah it’s a fantasy football preview... kinda. Rob and Dave are breaking down the consensus top ten quarterbacks in the NFL by helpfully providing you with one good thing and one bad thing about each guy. You’ll learn about Big Ben’s new playbook, the Packers’ bold new game plan, and Cam’s even bolder backup plan for when things go south. Make sure…
 
Friend of the Kicker Podcast Ronny Chieng ("The Daily Show" and "Crazy Rich Asians") joins Rob and Dave once again for a discussion of football, basketball, that time he almost maybe got beat up by Michael Bisping in Australia, and of course, a brand-new improvised sports movie. Ronny is truly one of the funniest stand-up comics working today, and …
 
Rob and Dave are going old-school on the kicker podcast with some recent headlines and some All-In/Not a Fan. Jalen Ramsey, Kawhi Leonard, and even Tiger Woods get discussed. Plus!

Rob and Dave are back with some BOLD predictions about the NFL season. They welcome Kicker writer Zack Phillips to cover everything from Tyrod Taylor never letting Baker Mayfield get a snap to Tom Brady's inevitable age decline (this may or may not cause Dave to start openly weeping) to Odell Beckham Jr's location for his first temper tantrum this …
 
Rob and Dave are looking forward to this NBA season by making some BOLD predictions about what might happen. Look, will all 10 of these come true? Of course not. But if one or two of them do, you better believe we're going to be bragging about it for years to come. Will the Mavericks will 50 games? Will Draymond Green mentor DeMarcus Cousins in the…
 
This episode is too big to fail! Rob and Dave break down what they love and hate about playing fantasy football, and how to fix the game forever. SPOILER: Moving forward, shady trades will get you jail time, and Jeremiah Budin will be the independent fantasy commissioner for every league. What did they miss? What would you like to change about fant…
 
Rob and Dave are here to break down which NFC teams will make the playoffs. They come armed with Vegas odds, historical trends, quarterback statistics, and some good old fashioned sports fan intuition. Despite not discussing it beforehand, they ended up with the exact same six teams making the playoffs! This means that they are both complete genius…
 
It's prediction time, and (new dad) Rob King is back!! With the NFL season about to kickoff, we're predicting (through a combination of meticulous research, a thorough analysis of recent historical trends, and some really bad guesses) the AFC slate of playoff teams for the 2018 NFL season. There are three agreements, and three vehement disagreement…
 
Rob King is still in New Baby Land, so friend of the Kicker Podcast and hardcore Yankees fan Jeremiah Budin squares off against noted Red Sox enthusiast David Ingber in this somewhat testy discussion about the Red Sox and Yankees. They discuss their favorite moments from the age-old rivalry, talk about why the current playoff system is just entirel…

We go through our favorite suggestions from you wonderful internet people, and decide which ones we're going to implement into o…
 
LeBron and Serena are the only definite entries. Everyone else is up for debate! Rob and Dave engage in some healthy, robust, and occasionally angry discussions to figure out who are the best 10 American athletes performing in their sports right now. And Dave has an interesting turn of phrase when describing Bryce Harper that causes Rob and Cole to…
 
The always hilarious Michael Torpey, host of the new TruTV game show Paid Off, with Michael Torpey, comes for his second appearance on The Kicker Podcast to fix the World Cup flopping problems, tell us about the incredible motivations for his new show (and how they weirdly involve Michael Jordan's underwear), and of course, improvise a new sports m…

Dave brings on Zack Phillips and Jeremiah Budin (co-hosts of the "Sports A**hole Hall of Fame" podcast) to figure out the ten best (some serious, some very insane) ways to fix America's pastime. Most excitingly? A designated steroids user on each team. Who …

And then, because he just can't help himself, Rob pro…
 
Holy crap! LeBron James is heading to the Lakers, and Rob and Dave are FREAKING OUT. Are the Lakers contenders now? Will Kawhi follow? Does this mean LaVar Ball was right all along? Ahhhhhh!!! The guys put out the Bat Signal and had to do an emergency podcast. (Look out for a cameo by Dave's adorable daughter Lucy.)…
 
Yep, you read that title right. Hilarious writer Mike Scollins (formerly of Funny or Die, now on staff of "Late Night with Seth Meyers") joins the Kicker Podcast to talk about all manner of sports topics, from national anthems protests to... Gronk playing hockey? Look, it's "The Mighty Ducks," but New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has m…
 
Comedian Nimesh Patel (SNL) joins Rob and Dave to talk 90’s hoops and Allan Houston’s five o’clock shadow.
